Hair style is the first thing that hits while making the first impression about the person. It seems as if the hairstyles have their own personality and voices in which they speak to you. A person’s hairstyle is indeed his way of making a style statement but it is also much more than that. A hairstyle at times depicts the mood of an era and the energy of a generation. Hairstyles can be as distinct as our instinct to say and do something different. Here is a list of ten different styles that stood the test of time.
This hairstyle has become the trademark of Afro Americans over the years. From its humble beginnings in the 1970’s, when it became the face of the civil rights moment of its celebrity status now, this hairstyle has come a long way. It is also special in many ways. Only very few white males can naturally attain an afro. Every Afro American youth bears this hairstyle as a symbol of pride and their innate uniqueness.
2. The Marie Antoinette
If Afro was about making a political statement, then Marie Antoinette is all about style. It was made famous by French women in the 1700’s. It is a very intricate and complex form of hairstyle to have, without losing on the flamboyance. It involves the use of pads, pomade and plenty of ornaments.
3. The Pageboy
Remember the iconic Uma Thurman hairstyle from the movie Pulp Fiction. The side hairs are cut to your chin length, while the front crop is cut in such a way that it falls flat on your forehead. Every hairstyle has emotions attached to it; with this one what comes to mind is “throw caution to the wind”.
4. The Beehive
The recently deceased Amy Winehouse caught the popular imagination with this unconventional hairdo. It was made popular in the 1950’s and the 60’s. It can also be seen as a modern day version of Marie Antoinette.
Calling this hairstyle a bit weird won’t be an exaggeration. But maybe that is where its appeal lies. Cornrow hairstyle consists of breads that are braided to
the scalp. It had been made famous by many celebrities over the years. The style never caught the popular imagination but is still considered a legend in many circles.
6. The Rapunzel
This pattern has been made famous by the fairy tale princess ‘Rapunzel’ whose hair locks were strong and long like a rope. In the fairy tale adaptation the hair length has shown to be knee long. But in real life five or six inches below the shoulder are just fine.
7. The ponytail
It is the most conventional form of hairstyle among the lot. The ponytail also goes well with different dresses and accessories. The best part; it is easy to do yourself.
8. The boy cut
The boy cut is also a sign of rebellious youth just like an Afro. It is also called the pixie cut. The hairs are extremely shot from all the sides. This hairstyle can look very appealing provided you have the vigor to carry it.
9. The Rachel cut
This was made famous by Jennifer Aniston. It was the trademark hairstyle of her character Rachel in the popular sitcom friends. The hairs are parted in such a way that they form a C like shape on both ends. It looks really cool and trendy, especially for young women.
10. The Bob
This is another of famous French creations. It was invented by French
hairstylist Antoine in the early 1920’s. The hairstyle saw its reemergence in the 1960’s by due to the innovation introduced by the British hair stylist Vidal Sassoon. The hairstyle suits most face types.
